    GREAT NEWS!!!

    My wife found a dog training facility that trains police dogs & they state in 2 weeks they can have her trained.

    The territorial issues they have given us information on how to correct & state we can fix those issues in 1 month.

    Everytime she shows the body language that we see, she goes in crate for 2 hours.

    I know this is 180 degrees from what is normal but we are at the end of our rope.

    I think we will send her to the academy for 2 weeks to give her some stability & go from there.

    It is 2k, but we do not pay anything until she is trained, for life....

    I am so happy to have a chance at keeping her.

    Last night, 3am, she goes out the dog door to potty, comes back in & walks up to my wifes head & pebbles & her get into a fight.

    I put her in the kennel. I sleep so lightly now just waiting for someone to move & I am awake in fear of a fight.

    I am so tired

    Holy great news... she will be a life long training sessionó I had one of thoseó Banks, had to watch her body language and keep her in check. She was HORRIBLE with all females and hit/miss with male... She also did boot camp when she was about 1 yr old.

    Please keep us posted.

    Might be better to crate her at night for sleep

    Well trainer came by to pick her up. We had everything loaded in his truck then he was about to have me hand her over and we asked where she she was riding. He said in her crate in the back of the truck. We said no way and we didnít have a good feeling about the whole situation.

    We said we changed our mind.

    Found another trainer that 2 people I know have used and we have delivery set up for this Sunday.

    Hope this works. She is such a sweet dog.

    Good for you to go with your gut and say "NO." A lot of people would have been intimidated. Your girl is so lucky to have such outstanding parents. I wish you well.

    Seriously?! In the back of an open truck, like a hunting dog?
    So glad you changed your mind. I hope this works out and gets things right in your house.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Well, after breaking up another dog fight, going to emergency clinic as I got the worst of it, Bam Bam is at Boot camp.

    They were not trying to bite me, I just got my arm in the wrong place.

    This Sunday is 2 weeks....Hope this works as she is such a great dog.

    Trainer does domestic dogs as well as police dogs & he let us know she definitely does not have any aggression, we are the problem.

    Just figuring out my little toy Eskimo Male that passed was the alpha dog & kept everyone in line.

    We miss her..

    Whoa!! So glad you are ok!!

    It is amazing how you donít realize or see the leader that keeps the balance till they are gone. We had a similar realization after our girl passed...

    Good luck with all the training... keep us posted
